CDC Guidance from 2007. I failed to find any compelling evidence within the state of Maryland's communications on lockdowns, etc. After sending my formal information request in May, I started looking for CDC recommendations and studies likely shared with the governor's office. I quickly stumbled upon this document, which seems to prove just how unprecedented this year's policies are. I haven't had time to finish a blog post around the CDC's Pandemic Severity Index, but here is the image I created from the content on pages 10-11. This document has been superseded by their 2017 version, which has a much more complex Severity Index. But by very clear 2007 standards, most governors' policies this year would not have been recommended. 2007: https://stacks.cdc.gov/view/cdc/11425 2017: https://stacks.cdc.gov/view/cdc/45220

I’m finally publishing some graphs that I compiled using CDC data exports from October 21: https://wikiworldorder.medium.com/oct-21-maryland-centric-covid-related-mortality-rankings-670522e4bcff This round of analysis primarily involved the northeastern states in the U.S., which seemed to experience very similar first waves of excess mortality. Here, I rank various jurisdictions by their total number of COVID-related deaths. Figure 1: COVID-Related Deaths (CDC) per Million of WHO Standard Population Distribution This is the most statistically important graph in this post. Each state’s COVID-related deaths are broken down by age group, then scaled to a World Health Organization defined Standard Population Distribution (Table 4). This makes the data closer to useful for experts' analysis, and provides more accurate comparisons than crude mortality numbers. After scaling for a WHO population distribution by age group… Governor Hogan presided over 371 deaths per standardized million here in Maryland, compared to Sweden’s 203. So despite the dramatic difference in 2020 public health policies, Maryland had 85% more age-group-standardized deaths than Sweden. Sweden also experienced fewer COVID-related deaths than most of the northeastern United States… safer than 17 out of the other 24 jurisdictions in this analysis. https://youtu.be/-D8MXQP0hSM https://wikiworldorder.medium.com/oct-21-maryland-centric-covid-related-mortality-rankings-670522e4bcff
